My partner and I stayed at the Ensku Husin for my birthday. The charm of the old building was apparent from the very start, set in its own grounds by the side of a river. The timber building is welcoming, and yet, for me, strange, like you had just stepped back in time. That does not mean to say that the place is dated in its quality of service; it had a timelessness that gave it a magical feel. The historic house is matched by the nearby historic town of Borgarnes, with its associations with Egil's Saga. It seems the sagas are never far away in Iceland. The service was first class, and the food had the unique quality of being locally produced by the family who run it (the lamb is to die for!). As a family run business Ensku Husin goes out of its way to be welcoming and friendly to their guests. The beautiful countryside is still and peaceful and in summer the sun shines throughout the night (or at least it seems that way, but good curtains aids a good night's sleep. I would gladly recommend this place to anyone who wants something a bit special and out of the ordinary. I will certainly be back; maybe with the rest of the family next time.
